Kevin; In those days the .38 Super was viewed by many as the "Gunmens' Gun" being much better than the .38 Special and also having more rounds that the .45 ACP version. Automatics were still looked down on by many because of 'too many things to work and thus too many more things to have go wrong.' Without a doubt the automatics are best in the hands of serious shooters and not the average Joe.
